This course focuses on the Swedish school system in relation to the student’s experiences of some other school system. Democracy is a significant aspect when addressing the school system, in this course. Another significant part of the course is the 5 days of internship. The course involves different assignments combined with a major final assignment. The latter is based on the student’s own empirical work involving an analysis of a school phenomenon. This assignment is presented orally and as a paper. The course is given in English and consists of full time studies during period 1. The course is designed for student teachers.
To get access to schools/preschools in Sweden it is required that you present a certificate from the police when you arrive at your placement.
